All Solid Waste Refuse Disposal Sites (landfills and transfer stations) within the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) are operated by the CSRD. Landfill sites can be found in the CSRD municipalities of Salmon Arm, Sicamous, Revelstoke and Golden. Transfer Stations are located in Seymour Arm, Scotch Creek, Skimikin (Tappen), Glenemma, Falkland, Malakwa, Trout Lake and Parson.
The Solid Waste Management Department, a branch of the CSRD Environment & Engineering Department, includes landfill and transfer station operation, recycling programs, waste reduction and education. The department is administered on a region-wide basis within a series of waste sheds. Waste sheds are geographic areas where solid wastes are generated and are ultimately transferred and deposited into a CSRD landfill site. The Salmon Arm waste shed includes Salmon Arm and surrounding areas as well as the communities of Seymour Arm, Scotch Creek, Skimikin, Falkland and Glenemma. The Sicamous waste shed consists of the municipality of Sicamous and surrounding area. The Revelstoke waste shed includes the municipality of Revelstoke and outlying areas including Malakwa and Trout Lake. The Golden waste shed includes Golden and outlying areas including Parson.
Programs offered and site operations are performed in accordance with the CSRD's Solid Waste Management Plan, the CSRD Landfill Sites Design and Operations Plans, Operating Certificates (issued by the Ministry of Environment), CSRD Bylaws and Policies, other provincial legislative requirements and generally accepted principles and practices.
The function is delivered through private sector contractual agreements and overseen by the CSRD's Environment & Engineering Services Department consisting of an Environment & Engineering Manager, Deputy Manager, Waste Management Coordinator, Waste Reduction Facilitator, Waste Management Facilities Superintendant and an Environment & Engineering Financial Services Assistant. Additional support is offered from the Finance and Administration Department.
